fun stuff  
I'm pretty psyched that I won a twitter contest for Sideshow Collectibles. I won a Hot Toys Thor figure to go with the matching Loki and Natasha ones I already own! woot!   That's very exciting, since I never win stuff (I can't tell you how many of their other contests I've entered, but the number is not single digits...) and it's awesome that it's Thor, when it could have been one of the random Iron Man suit figures.  also the Thor looks like  a good figure without being freaky - my Natasha is the edition that looks like they zapped Scarlett Johansson with a shrink ray and put her in the box. It's a little too accurate... Anyway, it's a bit less exciting since it's not even made yet - I won't have it until the end of the year at best. But hey, free Thor figure, can't really complain. :)

We went up to Yosemite last weekend for a couple of days. The southern part of the park wasn't too bad - there was some Willow Fire smoke around, which maybe were keeping some people away, and we went out to Glacier Point which has some of the best views (and is only open in the summer). But in the afternoon on Sat. the valley floor was a zoo. They're going to eventually do what they did at Hearst Castle and make everyone park outside the valley and then bus/tram/whatever, everyone in. It's ridiculous. Some light rail thing in a loop would work fine, and surely be more efficient and ecological than the mess there now.

Published new fic: The Fire Within (Star Wars Rebels, Hera/Kanan, Mature) which I wrote during Camp Nano and finished up.

Oh, and wonder of wonders, my NPT recipient did finally comment on her fic. So... I don't know why it took so long (esp knowing she thanked her own commenters weeks ago) but at least I heard from her. My record of all my giftees being polite is intact! Yay!

I'll definitely do a pic when I have the new one, it'll be pretty cool to pose all three.

Yosemite is pretty, for sure, but it does suffer from being an easy drive from San Francisco, so it's crowded. Winter's beautiful, but parts are closed, so it's kind of a tradeoff

Yay for your winnings! Also, yay for your new fic! (I haven't discovered Rebels yet - confession: I'm not great with animated fandoms. Unless it's Mulan, then... ;)

Re your NPT recipient - good. Still rude, but glad she sorted it.

aw, Rebels is so much fun, you should watch it! Though I confess I probably couldn't have ficced it either, except I read the tie-in novel. That helped. (and it also helps me to know that the guy is based on Freddie Prinze Jr, who does his voice, so it's easy to imagine him in live-action)
